Roman Kidane, 25
MN, St. Louis Park
Kirill Geilman, 55, was charged with second-degree intentional murder in the death of his girlfriend, Roman. He had called 911 at about 7:45 a.m. and stated, “I killed my girlfriend just now.”
Roman bled to death from several large wounds in her neck. She also had defensive wounds on her hands and stab wounds to the back of her head, stated the criminal complaint.
Offices said Geilman told them he “punched” Kidane in the neck “lots of times,” and he knew he killed her.
"This young woman died violently, and she died horrifically," said St. Louis Park Police Chief John Luse. "The crime scene suggests an angry act of passion, loss of control and violent rage."
Geilman is serving 20 years for Roman’s murder.
